Phone Setup

an account




When people are away from home they need a solution to call their friends or family on a cheap rate, because mobile roaming is an expensive thing. You can now setup a phone service for them so they can make cheap international phone calls.


Internet Connection

  • Any type of broadband internet connection is enough to handle your voice traffic. The minimum requirement is 256/128 kbit/sec.
  • Analog Touch Tone Phone with SIP Gateway/Adapter (optional)

  • You can offer the service on any type of analog phone with tone dialing. You also need a SIP gateway or adapter (for example Linksys PAP2) which will route the calls via internet to our call exchange servers. The cost of this entry investment is about $70.
  • Control Center Account Setup

  • You need to register an account so you can add your location and setup an account for your SIP device. You can also manage and print your calling cards, ratesheets, etc. there.
  • TIP: If you don't have a place to put out a phone, your customers can use any SIP phone, desktop or mobile SIP software applicaton. In this case you don't need a SIP gateway because everything is built in to the SIP phone. They just have to enter 'sip.sipcontrol.com' as the SIP server address, the username and password is printed on the calling card which they receive from you.

    We provide the system

  • Our servers will route the calls and will count each call's cost. Your client will be informed about the remaining balance on the phone.
  • We pay the calls

  • Our system can handle calls to almost any country of the world. Each route has it's own provider and system. You don't have to deal with this, we manage and pay all routes.
  • You bring the customer

  • It's your responsibility to provide the service in places where the most people need phone service. You also have to sell the printed prepaid cards.
  • You provide the telephone set

  • The equipment must be set up by you. You'll need a regular telephone, sip gateway, and internet connection. This hardware cost is about $70.
  • We share the income 50-50%

  • You sell the card, we provide the call and the prepaid system. We share the income so you get 50% and we get 50%.

    You print prepaid vouchers on our site

  • When you login to our Control Center you can do several things. You can buy additional cards, modify your details or you can print out cards.
  • You sell the vouchers

  • The prepaid vouchers are in different denominations. You can sell them for cash.
  • Customer picks up the receiver and enters the voucher code

  • On the phone the client will hear a welcome message which asks the client to dial a secret voucher code. After successfull authentication the line is open for the user.
  • Customer dials the requested number

  • After successfull authentication the user can dial the required number in international format. During the successfull call the system counts and deducts the actual calling cost from the client's balance. It's calculated from the actual calling rate. The client can here the balance too on the phone.
  • You can check the actual prices of calls here.


    You can use any touch tone phone with SIP internet gateway or you can use SIP phone too. The phone has to autodial 9999 to enter the calling card system. Basically you have to set three values on your SIP device: SIP server,SIP username, SIP password.

    You can find these values on the controlcenter under Calling Cards > Sip devices if you don't have any device yet, simply add your first SIP location.


    Example for Linksys PAP2 SIP phone gateway:

    1. How to setup and connect to your PAP2.

    - Before powering the device on, first you need to connect its Ethernet port to the internet.
    - Then connect your phone to the line1 port on the PAP2 device. Plug the power cable in and wait 60 seconds.
    - Pick up the phone, and dial the star key 4 times. You will hear a message stating you are in the configuration menu. Enter 1 1 0 and press the pound key (#).
    - You will hear a human voice give you your device's IP address.
    - Enter this ip into your browser's window. Some browsers will require you to remove leading zeros, ie will be
    - By default PAP2 does not have a password set. You will now be in the administrator interface.

    Open your SIP gateway's administration page and click on admin login, choose line 1.

    2. Set sip.sipcontrol.com in the SIP proxy (or SIP server) field. Enter your SIP user ID, and password you created in the control center (which is different from your controlcenter login and password).

    3. Make sure you enabled the line, Line Enable: yes and then press Save Settings

    4. Change to advanced mode under Line 1 and enter the following in the Dial Plan field: (<:9999>S0)

    This way the device will autodial 9999 so the user will not have to dial this, the user will hear the welcome prompt after picking up the receiver.

    5. Don't forget to Save Settings on each pages.
